(KSL News) SWAT teams responded to another Salt Lake Valley home overnight, this one in West Jordan.

Just before 10 pm, authorities received reports a man with a gun had barricaded himself inside his apartment at 1375 W. 7000 South and was threatening suicide. Police called the man on the phone, but he hung up then wouldn't answer.

A SWAT team surrounded the apartment, slowly entered the home, and peacefully took the man into custody. A neighboring apartment was evacuated as a precaution.
